I am strong because I choose daily to love myself. I deny the worlds ideals of beauty and embrace my own; declaring daily to myself, "I am beautiful." I am strong because I choose to do things my way. I don't let myself get pushed around, and I don't tolerate controlling behaviour. I am strong because I am finally free, and I have pursued this freedom for many years. I am my own, and I don't need anyone else to define me. This is why I am strong.
I am capable because I am a woman determined to succeed. I don't let obstacles stop me, or slow me down. I persist and I push on, even when I'm exhausted. I am capable because I try, and I strive daily to be better. Challenges excite and thrill me. I have a history of success in my field, and I am continuing to grow and learn. This is why I am capable.
I am enough because I am not completed by anyone other than me. I am enough because I don't depend on the words of others to define my worth. I am enough because I believe I am powerful enough, strong enough, and capable enough to do anything I want to. I am enough, because I know I'm not too much, or too little. I am enough because I am me, and that is simply all.
